    I mean if you like nBlade why switch back to something else...most of the recreational player (includes me) keep changing racquet just play like pros. I mean by changing racquet we add something but comes suffer at something. Even pros has to adjust like Roger has more mishits or unforced errors or you can say bad shots, Nadal suffer because he generate way too much spin on hard surface etc..just try to tell myself to stick with something and build game around that

    Yes my current racquet is nBlade. I like it a lot and makes a difference to my game but backend is suffering. I will get it right by playing more and changing balance of racquet rather experimenting with it.

    If you're talking about the Flexpoint FXP Prestige Team then you're talking about a 102sq racquet vs either a 98sq or 106sq one in the nBlade (you never mentioned which version you used). That's more than enough difference to throw your timing out. Also, there's a huge difference in feel between the Prestige (any version) and the nBlade. That's enough to also throw out your timing.

    you frighten me bro. my nblade which was purchased in NY 6 weeks ago could arrive any week . meanwhile i bought and got used to a PS 95.
    i am now wondering whether testing the nblade out will ruin my form.


    anyway, just get the nblade out of your mind. if you are underhitting, try overhitting. or vice versa.

    Hopping around from one frame to another is a recipe for mishits. It gets you using the muscle memory and timing you'd need for one racquet and trying to apply it to a different one. Racquets with different weights and balances will swing on a different "schedule", so changing frames will often scramble the timing you unconsciously rely on. It might even cause you to adjust the location of your hitting zone depending on how a specific racquet handles for you.

    If you can settle in on one for a while and stick with it (even though it's kind of a drag when you're experimenting), you should get your timing back.
